Peter Obi, former governor of Anambra State and running mate of the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) Presidential Candidate in the 2019 election, has withdrawn from the presidential bid.

Obi, who had traveled the country seeking delegate support for the presidential primary, backed out of the race with less than 72 hours to go.

According to reports, Obi has already notified the chairman of his Ward in Anambra of his departure from the party.

He has also written to the PDP’s National Chairman, Dr Iyorchia Ayu, about his desire to leave the opposition party.

Doyin Okupe, Director General, Peter Obi Campaign Organisation, commented on the development, urging Nigerians not to give up on Obi, who will be on the ballot for the 2023 Presidential election.
